Time Management

“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein”
- H. Jackson Brown

But Helen Keller, Mother Teresa, Michelangeo and da Vinci never married or had kids.

And although Einstein and Jefferson married and had children, Einstein left his to run off with his cousin, and Jefferson had slaves to wash all his progeny's nappies.

So, Mr Brown, although I love your Life's Little Instruction Book, perhaps instructions on how to cook dinner, iron tomorrow's work clothes and put a baby to bed simultaneously would be more useful. Maybe you can write me an instructable.

Kind regards,



  1. It's funny what titles we give ourselves. I still call myself a stay at home mother even though my 4 are all in primary school now & i've been running a business for a decade.
    Love how you talk about your husband, so nice & i have the same feelings about mine, after 13 years of marriage. We also have moved all over Australia, not a bad way of life at all. Love Posie
